It’s Valentine’s Day 2021! So we’d like to talk about Love, on the Camino de Santiago. Did you fall in love or back into love on the Camino? Share your Camino Love stories below!
I meet the love of my life, Emilio, in Santiago de Compostela, 6 years and a week ago and we couldn’t be happier together.
We had clients asking us for ideas on how to propose at the end of their Camino (in Finisterre or the Obradoiro Square); help on how to get married on the Way ; meeting on the Camino, changing their plans to walk together and returning to the Camino together months later ; celebrating their honeymoon or a special anniversary on the Camino… ( and by the way, we absolutely love getting these types of requests and having a small part in your love story)
But many forget that before you can love someone else, you need to love yourself. Many walk the Camino in Holy Years like this year and the next, to obtain plenary indulgeance from the Church but I also believe taking time off for yourself, to introspect while you are walking, see the good in people, reunit with your beliefs, is a very powerful therapy and the occasion to forgive yourself and fall back into love with yourself.
You are beautiful, you are the biggest gift! (these were messages found near the Iron Cross in Foncebadon)
HAPPY SAN VALENTINE’S DAY TO YOU ALL!
Love from Santiago,
